courtesy of oh6gdx - fully cloudy orange colour with a moderate head retention; aroma of hay and raspberries, sweet with a hint of acidity; moderate malt body, gentle finish of raspberries with some residual sugars - boring

Sweet flavor, raspberry jam and toast. Kind of medicinal, not a huge fan of this.

hopdog (12102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2004
On tap. Poured a cloudy golden color with a small head. Nothing too special - aroma and tastes of raspberries and wheat. Light and bland tasting. Ill pass on this in the future.

rosenbergh (11374) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 23, 2013
12 oz bottle. BB 01/11... From a gas station in New Orleans, LA.
Hazy orange amber colour with a small white head. Pilsner malt and mild grassy bitterness in the aroma. Mild sweetness, raspberries... or some other berries and malt in a pilsnery flavour. Not very good or tasty.

shrubber85 (11215) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - NOV 14, 2005
Bottle. Sweet raspberry malt aroma - a bit like the sweeter lambic framboise beers. Moderately cloudy - pinkish amber color with small head. Slightly sour, light raspberry malt flavor - really expected it to be sweeter from the aroma. Very little body. Pretty weak and bland.

deyholla (11016) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 29, 2009
Bottle. Poured hazy gold with a white head. Aroma consisted of fruits and a touch of malts. Flavor had the presence of raspberries and while easy drinking, it is not complex in anyway.

hopscotch (10993) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 18, 2003
Very light, hazy, straw-colored brew. Quickly dissipating, fizzy white head. The nose is of yeast, raspberries, banana and apricot. Lightly floral and interesting. Lightly malty flavor. Tangy with plenty of fresh raspberries and traces of fuzzy fruit. Well-balanced and fairly thin with a touch of honey. Light-bodied with a fizzy, dry mouthfeel. Very refreshing late Summer beer.
